This classic single screw motor yacht was built by James A. Silver Ltd, at Rosneath, for the prominent Clyde engineer, Mr. C Shanks. She was the sixth example of the new Brown Owl Class and was designed in close collaboration with the commissioning owner. She boasted a single engine installation, rare for this type of craft, with innovative vibration, absorption and possibly the first marine use of a calorifier.
